Deuteronomy 15:7–11

If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. Take care lest there be an unworthy thought in your heart and you say, ‘The seventh year, the year of release is near,’ and your eye look grudgingly on your poor brother, and you give him nothing, and he cry to the LORD against you, and you be guilty of sin. You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’


Proverbs 23:6–7

Do not eat the bread of a man who is stingy;

do not desire his delicacies,

for he is like one who is inwardly calculating.

“Eat and drink!” he says to you,

but his heart is not with you. 


Proverbs 28:22

A stingy man hastens after wealth

and does not know that poverty will come upon him.


Matthew 20:15

Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’


Isaiah 55:1

Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.


Mark 8:36

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?


Charles Studd

Only one life 'twill soon be past.

Only what's done for Christ will last.
